It’s a New Year!

I can’t believe 2013 is coming to a close! I feel as though my life has made a complete 180 since this time last year. I was so busy earlier this October that I completely missed the blog’s One Year Anniversary! WDYMM has become more than I ever thought it would. I can’t wait to get back to blogging and see where this year takes me!

I’ve complied 13 of some of my favorite and most popular posts from 2013. I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as I did!

Happy New Year, Everyone!!!

DIY INSPO // Alphabet Bracelet

Alphabet Bracelet

I first saw these Ryan Porter bracelets on Pinterest. They are a fun and contemporary twist on the friendship bracelets you’d make for your friends in elementary school. I love the grown-up twist and all the colorful phrases people have thought up. With some alphabet beads, these bracelets would be super easy to recreate, and would make a great gift for friends!

P.S. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A for the past two weeks. I am reaching the end of my run in pastry school which means more projects and practicing! I hope to be back to blogging regularly really soon!! As always, thank you for reading!

DIY Skull Bracelet

Skull-Bracelet

I wanted to make something in honor of the upcoming holiday. I found these cute little skull beads at Michaels and decided they would make the perfect bracelet. It is dainty and punk rock all at the same time. While I won’t be dressing up for Halloween this year, this bracelet will definitely keep me in the spooky spirit!

Materials

– Skull Beads
– Chain
– Wire
– Ruler
– Wire Cutter
– Pliers
– Jump Rings & Fasteners

Skull-Bracelet
1. Cut a piece of wire to about 3″. This is longer than you need but it’s good to leave room for error. Using the pliers, make a small loop on one end of the wire. Make sure the skull bead doesn’t pass through. Loop the opposite side to hold the bead in place.

2. Measure the chain to cut two separate pieces approximately 3″ in length.

DIY INSPO: Embellished Friendship Bracelets

Embellished-Friendship-Bracelets-3

It seems as though the 90s trends are here to stay a little while longer (ahem, overalls). Though I’ll be the last person to rock a crop top and tattered jeans, I do love bright friendship bracelets. The trend made a huge comeback last summer and the arm party was born. Embellished friendship bracelets add a touch of glam to any look. You can add studs along the center for a bit of punk rock. Or, weave some chain or rhinestones along the outer edges! I’ll definitely be DIYing these soon!
